Glenn Shimkus and Paul Koziarz founded Cartavi in 2009 in a small office outside of Chicago, Illinois. For two years prior to launching the company and writing the first line of code, they searched the real estate market, looking for a better way to store and share real estate documents. Then they decided to create a better way.
In the summer of 2010, we started a beta program which included a diverse group of agents and brokers across the nation. We shared working prototypes of both our web and iPhone applications with the group to help us fine tune the product.
